The Inaugural Oceania Chinese Teachers’ Conference

NZCLTAIt was a great privilege to attend the inaugural Oceania Conference for teachers of Chinese in schools over the weekend, 24th – 25th September 2016.  NZALT values and appreciates its partnerships with the language specific SLAs.  It is exciting to see how the NZ Chinese Language Teachers Association has grown from strength to strength since its inception in 2014.  This two-day conference, supported by the Confucius Institute Auckland and International Languages Exchanges and Pathways (ILEP), provided a significant opportunity for teachers of Chinese to upskill and learn about effective classroom practice.
